Dirty Superb

Dirty Superb

Taking their cue from experiments in jazz begun in the 60s and 70s, Dirty Superb recognizes the urgency of improvisation. Free Jazz in spirit--and Funk-Soul in fact--their mission is to mesmerize with rhythm and renew with original groove. In the land of a thousand dances, they unite the crowd under a single banner that reads, "Free your mind and the rest will follow." Through collaborative invention delivered with savvy and finesse, Dirty Superb epitomizes the jamocratic ideal.

Dirty Superb formed in Pleasant Gap, PA, when Elevator Logic members Michael New and Jacob Haqq-Misra (Mysterytrain) started writing music with local area guitarist Ryan Alford (Hounds of Soul).  Prior to the band's formation, Jacob and Ryan performed together in State College's 7 piece funk/jam band Cootie Brown.  The three had experimented with their instruments together at several musical gatherings in the area and were eager to combine their sounds to make a new listening experience.  When the band was formed, they began writing and playing soulful melodies with pockets made for the dance floor.   The organ-guitar-drums trio is best know for playing thick and soulful original grooves as well as a selection of pre-existing tasty jazz and funk bits.   Dirty Superb also plays as the rhythm section for State College area keyboardist and songwriter Gina Riggio.

Instrumentation

Michael New:   Rhodes, synth
